Extraordinary. drank with friends at a French restaurant after a splash decant. Fully mature deep ruby with zero sediment.
Beguiling nose of date, black cherry and spice. The fruit here is dynamic, dazzling and ethereal magical.
Sweet spot at the moment but a decade of life before fruit begins to fade.
No rush to drink up but if you enjoy dynamic fresh fruit this is your time.
If a date, this was a 30 year old Harvard PhD who thrills by test driving exotic lingerie for you.

Fantastic but not exhilarating. Drank BYOB with friends after s splash decant.
On the doorstep of maturity but still needs 1-2 hours of air before drinking.
Nose of dark berries, cherry creme de cassis and spice leading to fulsome mouth feel and long finish.
If a date, this was a 20 year old Nebraska farm beauty in NYC for the 1st time. Beautiful and worth your time but neither worldly nor wise.
Give her 2-5 more years when she will thrill completely.

Exhilarating. Scintillating nose of lemon, melon, cinnamon and a hint of allspice. No oak monster at all.
Delightful in a rare, invigorating crisp clean way but with a finish dragging on longer than a Trump presidency.

If a date, this was a chance encounter with a smart college coed who turns your Sunday into Christmas in June.
Still vigorous now but drink soon, there's not much stuffing.

Fantastic! I was intrigued when I read this scored 100 points by someone I hadn't heard of so ordered 6 bottles.
Beguiling intriguing nose of lemon, butterscotch and melon.
Very complex and long long finish.
Is it perfect? Close but not in that all enveloping way 100 pointers are.
If a date, this was a 20 year old noteworthy Midwest beauty new to Madison Avenue modeling, but fun and exhilarating to be with.

Definitely worth a 2nd or 3rd date

Captivating. Drank with friends at a charity thank-you dinner following a 2 hour decant. Fully mature with no real sediment, this is fully mature and nowhere near fading.
Exhilarating nose of dark berries anise and Asian spice frame a laser-focused clean Pinot Core.
The mouthfeel cloaks the palate in silk and lingers all week.

Exhilarating. Drank with friends at a charity thank you dinner following a two hour decant.
Fully mature deep ruby with no sediment but with decades left.
Spectacular nose of dark berries and spice literally burst forth from the glass.
Coats and pleases the palate as few wines I've been fortunate to enjoy then leaves a finish which makes War & Peace seem a short bedtime story.

Terrific++ but young. Drank with friends after a splash decant at our local BYOB French bistro. On the doorstep of maturity but 2-3 years away from explosive greatness.
Plenty of stuffing here but reticent nose of berries, mocha, plum and spice.

Wine-gasm. From magnum with friends at our local French restaurant.
Scintillating nose of dark fruit berries and spice.
The magnum format save plenty of the ebullient berries and vibrancy which may be fading in 750ml format at age 28+
No hurry to drink up with 10-20 years spectacular drinking ahead.

Enthusiastically approved WOTN at an annual wine dinner of friends. We were worried the fruit might be fading age 33 but such concerns were misplaced.
Remarkable nose of black cherry, spice, and a subtle hint of truffle.
Seemingly endless finish.

Wonderful solid claret. From magnum with friends at a steakhouse.

With oenophile friends after a splash decant. Fully mature dark ruby with minimal sediment, this exhibited none of the reticence and unapproachable nose Parker mentions was the case most of it's life. Deep black fruit licorice and cassis-infused layer cake nose with soft viscous feel and 30 second finish.
The experienced drinkers were wide-eyed with delight and universally in awe.

Tasty! Drank at a local restaurant after a brief decant. Essentially mature with dark ruby color and no sediment.
Obviously a cool climate expression of Bordeaux varietals due to lack of density and viscosity with a decidedly midweight feel.
Nose of prunes, plums, date and mocha.
Sweet spot currently but with 5-10 years fine drinking ahead. Decanting is rewarded so give this 1-3 hours if you can.

If a date, this was a 28 year old with varied passions and interests, but lacking life experience for meaningful conversation.

Drank with friends after a brief decant paired with seafood at a terrific local Realais & Chateaux restaurant:

La BohemeIt was everything that is great about Oregon Pinot Noir: Lively vibrant complex fruit nose of black cherry, raspberry & currant with the faintest whiff of gooseberry restrained muscular backbone knit together with tight elegant tannins framed with crisp acidity. Charm, grace, complexity and elegant power.

There's not much stuffing here so it's best enjoyed within 3-5 years lest it starts to droop.

Omg, Wow!! drank with friends on Thursday following a splash decant.
Essentially mature but with decades of brilliance ahead, this is one of those wines which has you seriously contemplating if this is the best Bordeaux you've ever been fortunate to sample.
Deep ruby core of unctuous layers of black fruits and spice.
In a word, exhilarating start to finish.
Give this as much air as you can allow to release treasures within.
If a date, this is the one you take home and immediately start plotting a life of sublime adventure together.

Excellent but not transcendental. Enjoyed with friends at a local restaurant after a splash decant.
Medium-dark purple with lighter rim, this is nearing full maturity but still 5+ years away so give it lots of air before serving.
Notes of plum, black fruits and Asian spice.

Sexy & focused. Drank with friends at La La Tour d'Argent in Paris with foie gras appetizer, then finished at dessert with cheese.

Fully mature beautiful clear corn syrup color, called topaz by sommelier David Ridgway.

Laser precision nose of apricot, lychee and light honey, it lacked the caramel viscous weight one usually associates with aged Sauternes but was lightweight and delicious.

Dancing on the palate, the finish wasn't one, but rather a World Series game 7 in the 12th inning.

Spectacular+. Pop & pour from magnum at an informal gathering of nerds. Fully mature dark ruby with minimal sediment
While I've been worrying about my remaining '82s because of mediocre recent experiences with faded fruit, the magnum experience retained all the fresh glory of a fully mature version of this amazing 'California' vintage.

There's so much stuffing here you can decant for an hour to maximize the brilliance.

Holding steady at a stylish high level, it continued to improve throughout the 2 hour dinner, suggesting a long decant is ideal to showcase this beauty if you have time.

Thrilling. Drank with friends at a local restaurant after a splash decant.
Perfectly mature deep ruby with moderate sediment in the bottle but not the glass.
Deep brooding complex nose of black fruits, spice and cassis.
The only reason this is slightly shy of 100 point perfection is a very slight, subtle distant green note on the nose which dispersed and wasn't noticeable in the mouth.
20 years of fantastic drinking ahead with no indication of fruit decline.
